CLARK FREEPORT ZONE
The race starts at the Parade Grounds of Clark Freeport Zone, near the Tennis Court.
How to Get to CLARK
Approximately 80 kilometers north of Manila, Clark is reachable by land or air.
Driving by car from Manila takes an hour and a half. Take the North Luzon Expressway and exit at Dau, Mabalacat City, Pampanga. Make a left turn toward Angeles City and then a right turn toward Clark.
Clark may also be reached via the new Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX). From the North Luzon Expressway, continue the drive leading to the SCTEX exit. You may use either the Clark North Interchange (Panday Pira access road near Nayong Pilipino) or Clark South Interchange (near Yokohama and Clark Main Gate) to enter Clark.
Public buses also ply the routes on a daily basis. Ride a Victory Liner bound for Dagupan and alight at Dau common terminal. Walk a bit toward the highway where jeepneys or tricycles are available. These vehicles can take you right up the Clark gate. Another bus line, Philippine Rabbit, also has trips to Angeles, Pampanga, via Dau, and other buses going north may also pass by the area. Ask the driver or conductor beforehand to be sure.
Several airlines offer domestic and international flights to Clark International Airport (CIA). For complete and updated airline schedules, visitwww.clarkairport.com.
Getting around Clark
For the convenience of guests, a number of taxis operate inside Clark to and from the Main gate as well as from hotel establishments in Clark. Alternatively, public jeepneys offer a modest and affordable means of transportation available daily to shuttle commuters to the different establishments within the Freeport.
There are two (2) public shuttle terminals each located at the Main Gate, for those coming from Angeles City, and Mabalacat Gate , for those from Mabalacat City and northern towns of Tarlac and Zambales.
